Radiohead's new album arriving in June
Message has described himself as "praying every night" that the band will make their new album available on streaming services like Apple Music and Spotify.
Radiohead's long-time visual collaborator Stanley Donwood said last month (March) that he has heard the band's new album, describing the LP as "a work of art", though he also said at the time that the record is not yet finished.
Radiohead will play the following headline dates:
Amsterdam @Heineken Music Hall (May 20-21)
Paris @Le Zenith (May 23-24)
London @Roundhouse (May 26-28)
New York @Madison Square Garden (July 26-27)
Los Angeles @Shrine Auditorium (August 4, 8)
Mexico City @Palacio De Los Deportes (October 3-4)
The Guardian reports that Message added: "I'm looking forward to the day [the album] does come out. And I hope – I really hope – it does come out on streaming services. To say that’s been answered, believe me it hasn’t, but I’m praying every night that it does." and added: "What I love about streaming is if you’re a kid, with your headphones in, it’s cool. On the bus or the tube, it ticks a load of boxes, you can go into your own world."
He also stated it "will be like nothing like you've ever heard". The upcoming LP will be the band's follow-up to 2011's 'The King of Limbs'.
Frontman Thom Yorke made headlines in 2013 by calling Spotify "the last desperate fart of a dying corpse".
